Four-star UCLA commit Rahim Moore (6-0, 185, 4.45) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey has lived up to his reputation as one of the west's best players. Not only has Moore had an outstanding season, but he is also setting records in the process. No wonder the talented defensive back is still being recruited coast-to-coast.
According to Moore, he now has over 70 tackles in 2007 making him the all-time tackle leader for a three-year starter at the safety position. His 19 career picks and counting are the most in Dorsey history.
When you consider the talent that has played for Dorsey over the years that is quite an accomplishment
In the opening round of the playoffs, Moore had a huge game. Would you expect anything less? Big players show up in pressure situations.
"I had 12 tackles and three big hits against San Pedro," Moore said. "They played me in the box as a spy.
Moore has the talent to play anywhere in the defensive backfield on the D-I level.
"We tried to keep it under wraps about Rahim's versatility," Dorsey defensive backs Carver Russaw said. "When we need to close down a receiver who is giving us trouble we put Rahim out there.
"With Rahim and Francis McDonald out there it makes it tough on the opposition to throw on us. We lock it down.
Moore has also played some wide receiver this season and according to him he has 22 receptions for close to 700 yards and nine touchdowns. He also has 500 return yards and has even returned one of his interceptions 98 yards for a touchdown.
On the recruiting front Moore is taking visits. Moore was scheduled to visit Michigan, but didn't end up taking that trip. His most recent visit was to Arizona State and though he enjoyed himself, he is still very much committed to UCLA, but he will be taking other visits.
The word is Pete Carroll and a coach from the Texas Longhorns was in attendance when Dorsey beat San Pedro 21-7 in the opening round of the playoffs last Friday Night.
This Wednesday Evening Dorsey will be taking on a tough Venice team.
